Chris Doleman only spent two of the 15 seasons in his Hall of Fame career with the Falcons, but it's still worth noting the former Atlanta players is making his official trip to Canton this weekend.

Doleman played for the Falcons from 1994-95 after spending eight years with the Minnesota Vikings as their star defensive end. He was their Jared Allen of that day. In fact, Doleman's 21 sacks in 1989 stood as the most by a Vikings player until Allen recorded 22 in 2011.

When Doleman joined the Falcons in '94, he didn't have his biggest year and there were no major accolades, but he's an 8-time Pro Bowler, three-time 1st Team All Pro selection and two-time 2nd Team.

In his career, Doleman recorded 150.5 sacks.
